I know that you are scared, but please calm down. If he is an inside/outside kitty it is likely he ate something that disagreed with him, and the result is the vomiting. If he ate for example a field mouse that would explain the blood. I would offer him water, or make some homemade pedialyte to replace the electolytes he is losing, and just keep him quiet. But you need to be calm and quiet as well for he will pick up your stress easily and it will make him all the harder to handle at the vet. www.kitten-rescue.com will give you directions on how to make a homemade pedialyte

Glad he's feeling better. Since you have the vet appointment in the morning, and there's absolutely nothing you can do right now anyway, it's probably best to let everybody get some sleep and let the vet do his/her job in the morning. Hope he stays OK.

I know it can be so scary when our kids are sick, whether they are people or fur kids.
If he`s rolling over for you to pet his tummy then that sounds fairly contented to me and a good sign.
Hopefully there will be no more vomiting and the worse is over.
Let us know what the vet has to say tomorrow...and try to get some sleep tonight.

I am sorry that you were so scared. I know exactly how you feel when you don't know what is going on and are desperite.When I read your message it scared me, because I could feel your fear. I am so glad everything worked out fine. Now you can breathe easy.

I'm glad they are fine. And now they have been neutered! Yay for you for getting them neutered. You have greatly improved their lives, and prevented unwanted kittens!
